The Dead End

I've now set myself a deadline for when the script has to be finished - specifically Sunday April 8th. After this date, I will make the script available to potential auditionees.

In Sight

With Familiarisation, Auditions and pre-production all due to begin in earnest soon, we need to have a definitive script. It's going to be hard to let it go as there are still little things that I'm adding and changing, but there has to come a point where one says "That's it." Indeed, all-but-one of the major problems from the recent readthrough have been addressed, and so the changes are at the level of a different word here, a new hyphen there - necessary, but hardly compelling...

Furthermore, with the deadline for Write Live 2007 approaching, my mind is starting to think about writing something new, rather than just editing H&M.

I'm sure there will be a temptation to change things once we get into the process, and I'm not sure whether we'll permit that or whether, for the sake of fairness, we'll have to keep things final - it will be interesting to see what happens in this regard.

But for now, yeah... Two weeks to go and the two words at the bottom of the script's last page will be for real - the end.
